What ever man. I hope you feel very superior now. You're so in the know. Do you have groupies?

Sorry man, didn't mean to harsh your mellow. It's an in-joke, and if you do check rmgd, you'll find some amusing stuff re the "Barton Hall concert". Fake or not, it is a worthwhile listen.

Since you cop to being a neophyte, here's another one worth streaming -- 1984-10-09, The Centrum, very solid set II especially. Listening to "He's Gone" as I type, nicely built up, and Jer's in good voice tonight.

I read that GD group for awhile. Haven't seen a more officious, snotty self-important bunch of bureaucrats ...
Now 'snotty' and 'self-important', ok, but 'bureaucrats'? a low blow for sure.

I took your advice. I think I get it now. :-D And if we follow this line of thought then it is obvious that all the mothers of the producers of the TV show X-Files were all impregnated by Space Aliens in Jerrys Tent during the Loser, right?

Thanks. :-)

LOL I apologize for *my* "snottiness." But I tell you, I am defensive from that group. That's the way they are over there now.

You're beginning to get the drift :-), although 'space' might be more appropriate than 'The Loser'. Maybe Mind Left Body Jam? or Third Encounter Jam?

No problemo, and sorry to throw the "fake 5-8-77" at you so early in your career. It's just reflex. Thing is, for a variety of reasons it's probably the single most famous/popular/loved concert, and people felt compelled to deflate its supposed 'perfection' a bit.

Well, this will give you a hint of how weird usenet has made me. I was going to write "space" ( I swear! :-) ), but then I remembered they didn't play it that night. So I figured if I wrote that some pedantic um, "wotzit" would jump all over the post. I am now realizing this message board might not be like usenet.

I can actually understand that. "All great art has an imperfection" kind of deal. Couple that with a good conspiracy theory and we're on our way! :-)

Thanks again.

I have to disagree here. The jokes on rec.music.gdead about 5/8/77 being fake are not actually funny. Annoying, maybe, but not funny. Okay, so maybe it was marginally clever for about 2 days, but this many years down the line it's just not the least bit amusing.

yeah man that's not sixties.

there were better things to do in 1977, like go see Blondie, or Talking Heads, The Jam, The Wailers, The Dominos (Bob Marley, Justin Hinds) imho.
